However, there are thousands of Jews living in Westchester county which is a beautiful place to live and raise a family.

Sushi Metsuyan Kosher In Monsey, NY Has Closed

Sushi Metsuyan Kosher in Monsey (technically in Airmont), New York (Rockland County) has closed. It was a favorite restaurant of mine and I will miss it for sure. What I loved about Sushi Metsuyan Monsey was that it was like a hybrid of an upscale kosher restaurant but not outrageously priced. It was also located a bit out of the “Main Street” area down south on Saddle River Road so the place was never jammed packed. The food was always delicious, the menu simple and not very complicated and the food was served in a reasonable amount of time. I really liked it and used to be a very frequent quest there. Either with my family or for business meetings. But the good new is that Chaim (Howard) Stimmel who was a partial owner and partner in the Monsey location of Sushi Metsuyan opened up a brand new kosher Steakhouse and Sushi restaurant on the very same location called The Ridge Steak & Sushi. I just spoke to Chaim and he hopes to post The Ridge Steak & Sushi soon…
